Toshiba double 2.5-inch enterprise HDD capacity
Toshiba's newly introduced MK01GRRB/R hard drives are meant for the enterprise market and spin at high 15,000RPM speeds. The 2.5-inch drives are also offer the highest capacity of their kind, at 300GB. Both models use a 6Gbps SAS connection, with the R model adding self-encrypting for an added layer of security.
The line will also include a more modest 147GB model. With the third-generation, 300GB version, Toshiba effectively double the capacity of its high-performance enterprise drives. Power consumption is lowered thanks to a power condition state that reduces drive spin when in idle.
The drives ship this winter, though pricing is yet to be made official.
